What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: September 18, 2019
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age.

Today was a very long day ! When living in Westchester, I used to play Los Robles fairly often, but since moving to Orange County, because of the distance, I rarely play here any more. So when a friend living in Thousand Oaks asked me to join him, I agreed. I almost always play super early, so I am not used to 4+ hour rounds.
After fighting 100+ miles of traffic, although the round actually only took about 4 1/2 hours, it felt like forever. Maybe because I played like sh*t, it just made it feel all that much longer. Then almost 3 hours to make it back home. A long day !
As for conditions, not a whole lot to add to Gary's review. I spent a lot of my round in the chips/rough, so rarely had much opportunity to hit many greens, so can't speak to their receptiveness. Also seemed to either short-side myself or find myself above the pin at the wrong time, so it was playing pure defense all day. Brutal !
I have always liked Los Robles, but when you play so poorly, it is difficult to me objective. Recommend this course. It's interesting, enough of a challenge (Particularly when you're off your game) and the staff is always welcoming.» Close

First out walking on a cool Monday morning at 6:08am. (Actually teed off at 5:50) Fairways were winter thin, and were kind of "clumpy". The greens could have been really nice, had they been mowed, but despite rolling fairly well, they were just soooo slow. Bunkers were awful, wet, compacted, and not maintained. It is critical at this course that the bunkers be in good shape because they are just a predominant feature of this course. I was in a bunch of them, and it was a struggle to play from those condition.
I really enjoy walking this course. Nice mix of holes, and other than the freeway noise on a few holes, it can be quite pleasant out there. Not a big fan of all the "back nine" play that I seem to encounter, but it wasn't too bad today. Staff was friendly, on time, and accommodating. $21 is a bargain to play here.» Close

Off early walking in the drizzle to finish before a 9am shotgun start. I was hoping that the rain yesterday and this morning would soften the greens, because they have been so firm, because I do not hit the ball high, becomes super difficult to stop shots on a number of the holes. For those that have played the North course at Coto, nearly every approach must carry a bunker, so you have to be able to fly the ball to the green, and then somehow get it to stop !
Greens firm and very fast, running between 11.5 & 12. Fairways just now starting to get a little more grass. Bunkers and tee boxes are excellent. Rough still has issues. They will be punching greens in a few weeks, so that should help with the firmness.» Close

Hadn't been to Mile Square for a while, so looked forward to returning. While not the most exciting golf course, it provides good solid affordable golf with adequate challenge, but not to the point where it will expose all your weaknesses.
Condition was actually better than I expected. Most of the course seem to have very thin fairways and super firm greens, but there was a decent amount of grass on the fairways, and the greens held shots fairly well. ( Or maybe I just hit a few good shots? ) The bunkers I found had nice sand, well raked.
My biggest regret was that I never looked at the map of the proposed new single course layout. I thought about it when I was about half way home. Guess that will force me to return just to satisfy my nature» Close

One of the reasons I enjoy playing here is the staff is always super friendly and accommodating. They actually make you feel welcome and convey an appreciation that you are patronizing their course.
Conditions are pretty much what Gary00 indicated. Winter/dormant fairways, many tight lies. Greens rolled OK, could be vary quick if you found yourself above the cup. Only in one bunker and it had enough well manicured sand. Most of the tee boxes were fine, a few needing attention.
While not a really difficult course, I just do not seem to be able to put up any kind of decent score here? Despite my inability to play well, enjoyed the round and the weather. Maybe next time I'll figure this place out ?» Close
